What happens when you take the timeless Shakespearean play A Midsummer Night’s Dream and reinterpret it as a musical set in Athens, Georgia in the summer of 1970? You get the new work, Dream 70, which The Fox Lane Players will be premiering this March. In this updated version of the classic comedy, we find the teenage Susan Egeus running away from Athens with her boyfriend Moses Lysander in order to avoid marrying Donald Demetruis, the suitor her father has chosen for her. But when Donald follows the happy couple into the woods, trailed by his obsessed ex-girlfriend Deborah, things take an unexpected turn. Confusion and hilarity ensue as the four mortals stumble into the world of the fairies and find their feelings redirected by a magical love flower. Throw in a beatnik poet who gets transformed into a donkey, a group of hippie protestors plotting to crash the mayor’s wedding reception, a deceitful secretary, and a toe-tapping rock-country-blues musical score and you have the recipe for one fun night of theater.
